Tundra to Tow Shuttle to Retirement

I think it would have been cooler if it were a Tacoma but ;) The Shuttle Endeavour on her second to last launch in February of 2010 heading to the ISS. In an afternoon release, Toyota said that its Tundra full-size pickup truck is scheduled to tow the space shuttle Endeavour for the last few feet of it final journey to the California Science Center on October 13, 2012. The Endeavour will travel a total of 12 miles from LAX on city streets to the Science Center, with the Tundra towing only the last quarter mile. Just a short hop compared to the 122 + million miles done under rocket and glide power ;)
